Q: Hi team,

About 6 month ago, you provided a list of 10 stocks you considered "high conviction" buys. Thus, I bought VRT, HPD.A, LLMN. I have no regrets so far....for good reasons.
Grateful if you would provide your actual high conviction list, both in Canadian and U.S. stocks, indicating your order of strongest conviction.

I hold these companies between two TFSAs and have room for two more, small cap, Canadian growth companies. What might you suggest. Sector consideration not an issue although I do recognize the importance of diversification.
Thank you

Q: Everyone, I have been watching the above growth stocks since late last year. I usually have one or two high growth quality stocks that will add to the average returns of my portfolio. My last purchase of a high growth stock was LMN, which I purchased last September, with an average price of $20.50. The ones I am watching now have risen significantly and I am hesitant to buy into them since they might decline 50%. So should I buy a small portion of each to maybe a 10% holding of my overall portfolio? Or should I wait till……..

Q: Over the last couple of months and as a result of comments made here I have started positions in the above five companies with funds allocated to higher growth potential/higher potential volatility etc.

Four of the five have done very well so thank you. In keeping with your philosophy of pulling the weeds and watering the flowers I have a couple of questions:

1) Would you sell ESTC at this point in time and realocate the funds to one of the four flowers or to a "new" high reward potential investment you would suggest?

2) The ESTC issue aside, would you be adding to any of these flowers at this point in time and in which order?

Thanks for guidance over these last number of years,
